Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgery
The human body is a wonder when it comes to understanding its functioning. What stimulates the heart to pump in blood, how do lungs separately absorb oxygen, and how the blood reaches each and every organ in the body, is exactly what the cardiothoracic and vascular system deals with. If you have a disturbed respiratory cycle, you feel it when you can’t breathe. You don’t get enough oxygen and end up having lowered levels of oxygen in your blood, resulting in poor circulation. So, when there’s a disturbance in the blood circulation, it affects the heart’s functioning, by not allowing it to pump enough blood to the rest of the body. This is when cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons are consulted.
